Synopsis : This review volume consists of an indispensable set of chapters written by leading scholars, scientists and researchers in the field of Randomness, including related subfields specially but not limited to the strong developed connections to the Computability and Recursion Theory. Highly respected, indeed renowned in their areas of specialization, many of these contributors are the founders of their fields. The scope of "Randomness Through Computation" is novel. Each contributor shares his personal views and anecdotes on the various reasons and motivations which led him to the study of the subject. They share their visions from their vantage and distinctive viewpoints. In summary, this is an opportunity to learn about the topic and its various angles from the leading thinkers.
Critique: It is a book aimed at the general scientist/philosopher/mathematically literate reader. You won't learn the precise details of quantum mechanics in this book, but what you will learn is a great deal about current thinking of a collection of leading experts in a broad range of topics in and around randomness. It certainly gave me much food for thought. I certainly found a lot of food for thought here, and regard this as an excellent addition to my library. -- Amazon.com "Amazon.com"
